Our manifesto: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in
The lockdown has disrupted our daily lives and even though we know it's for our own safety, those who hoped to tie the knot or graduate are left with bittersweet moments.
One lady, Philela Lufuta, would have celebrated her second graduation this week. However, with the lockdown, all universities cancelled their graduation ceremonies.
Lufuta ended up throwing herself a home graduation to celebrate the moment. She revealed she specialised in Occupational Health Nursing.
She captioned the post:
"Today could have been my second graduation, congratulations to me for obtaining a Speciality in Occupational Health Nursing."
Take a look at her post below:
Lufuta decided to go ahead and have her own graduation ceremony at home and she did it in style. The professional nurse looked stunning as she celebrated her academic achievement in lockdown.
Take a look at her photos below:
Social media users congratulated Lufuta on bagging another qualification.
Mrs SA semi-finalist 2020, @MrsBashaT, commented:
"Congratulations sister. Well done."
Papa Mahasela, who goes by the Twitter handle @PapaMahasela, added:
"My congratulations are in order, well deserved...What is more important is obtaining the qualification not the graduation ceremony."
Lufuta is not the first graduate who had to give up one of the most special days of her life because of the coronavirus.
Two sisters were set to walk across their varsity's stage to collect their respective diplomas. However, with the lockdown they were unable to.
YEN.com.gh reported they decided to host a graduation ceremony at home which was officiated by their beautiful mom.
